Also, people who are able to run should. I didn't start running till I was 23/entered religious life. It's a very inexpensive way to excercise and can be meditative and prayerful.
Give it a try!
A pair of decent shoes is all you want.
And it can be more convenient and cost-effective, and less time-consuming, than going to the gym. While running anytime can help you toward your fitness goals, running in the morning may provide extra psychological and physiological benefits that help speed your progress pic.twitter.com/fy27CWaoWa— ProH2Osport (@PROH2Osport) September 10, 2018

In real life, does not need any significant investment to start running as a way of increasing physical exercises. Not only the requirement of equipment and accessories like shoes is minimal , it does not need a significant investment of time either.
Easy to maintain running for long term
Research has shown that ⅔ of the people who start running as a way of exercise continue to do so even after 6 weeks which is lower dropout rate as compared to other forms of exercise. So if you start running , it’s quite likely you will continue it for long.
How does running benefits us ?
It's a great way for anyone to begin! If you can progress to full running, your performance should improve. Our muscles can store up to 20-22 mi of glycogen, so there's really no wall if you're taking in fuel along the way. Ultras you go beyond the wall- shift to fat metabolism.— Camille Herron (@runcamille) September 6, 2018
I'm biased (given background) however can't deny the powerful effects of exercise on cardiac function. Get the engine/heart running properly first then start playing with the fuel mix (food). Ideally both together but it can be daunting without support.— Dr Tom Butler (@drtom_butler) January 3, 2018
Why do you run? For fitness? For charity? For fun? For your mental health? Personally I’ve battled against depression and anxiety since my early teens, I started running to help. Raising money for charity, keeps me focused and moving forwards rather than slipping back @UKRunChat— Peter Redwood-Smith (@redwood_smith) September 11, 2018
